Modern tattoo allows artists to move away from the classical forms of this art, in favor of mixing techniques and styles to obtain truly unusual and interesting works.

Today, we want to tell you about the Italian tattoo artist Nicola Rinaldi, better known in the world as Nik The Rookee. Over the years of his career as a tattoo master, he developed a recognizable and very attractive style of tattooing. Mixing the techniques of traditional and non-traditional tattoo in his works, adding to them a bit of abstraction and surrealism and combined it with “acidic” color solutions, he creates bright, amazing and damn stylish works that should be noted by any fan of illustrative tattoos.

If you dive deeper into Nicholas's portfolio, it is not difficult to see that his style is developing year after year, acquiring new specific features. As he said in one of the latest interview: «I always try to put myself in the place of a student and learn as much as possible from my colleagues, with whom I was lucky to work. Perhaps from here my nickname was born».
